How to adjust the tension on a 930 record

There is a dial on the top of your machine (shows + and -) just to the left of the decorative stitch selector. Plus increases the tension, minus decreases it.

Make sure that you raise the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This helps the thread seat properly in the tension guide.

A blunt needle can also cause this. Try pulling a button thread or any slightly thicker thread through all the tension springs, perhaps you have a blockage somewhere.

The thread keeps tightening and loosening causing the stitching to be off.

This happened to me once on my machine...Pfaff. There was a teeny weeny bit of thread caught in the tension disks. I slid a piece of paper between the discs and eventually got it out. Also....if you sew with cones the thread tension often goes off because cones are not meant to be used on the spool holder. Buy a special device for holding cones of sorta looks like those verticle paper towel holders. (a disk with a stick poking up from it) This will solve your tension problems and prevent needles from breaking all the time. If neither of these ideas help......maybe your machine needs servicing. Give these a try first.....might save yourself a big repair bill. If you can't find the cone holder........wind off thread from your spool onto a bobbin and use that as your upper thread.

The upper thread tension on my Bernina 930 is too loose. I have changed the needle (it is in correctly) Checked for dust/thread remnants in both the tension springs and bobbin. Cleaned and oiled the bobbin...

If you threaded the machine with the presser foot lever raised and the stitching is still loose, the tension control may need a new spring or the entire control may need to be replaced.

Berninas tend to be the only brand that hold their value and it would be worth the expense to take it to an authorized Bernina dealer for service and repair.

How to thread bicor vx 1005 sewing machine?

Most older machines start the thread from the spool on a spool holder then the thread goes through a tension dial, on to another tension holder inside the case. Then make sure the thread is going through a lever that goes up and down with the needle, through a thread holder near the needle.
